RAM, that refers to Random Access Memory, is a computer storage media that is accessed much more quickly than a disk drive, simply because the data can be read randomly, skipping the bytes before the needed information is reached. On a hosting server, the RAM is employed to load scripts and web apps when they are executed, so the more RAM you may use, the more apps you'll be able to run simultaneously and the more people will be able to explore your websites without any effect on the site’s/server’s functionality. Unlike a disk drive, however, the RAM is used for momentary storage purposes, due to the fact that the data is lost once the power is shut off. In case you use a shared web hosting account, the physical memory your scripts could use may be limited and might change based on what the other customers on the same machine use. Using a virtual or a dedicated hosting server, on the other hand, you shall have a guaranteed amount of RAM which will not be used by anyone else even if you don't use it at a particular time.

Guaranteed RAM in VPS Servers

When you opt to host your sites on a VPS server purchased from our company, the amount of RAM you will get with it shall be guaranteed and shall be available at all times no matter what. The VPS accounts are set up on effective web servers and when your virtual server is created, the RAM memory provided with the particular plan shall be "locked", so even when you use a part of it at one point while another VPS account is using almost all of its system resources, we'll never assign the free RAM from your account even briefly. That is valid if you upgrade the total memory of the virtual server as well - the additional amount will be added to your existing account permanently. You'll be able to upgrade either the whole package or only the server’s RAM with simply a few mouse clicks inside the billing CP.

Guaranteed RAM in Dedicated Servers

If you need a powerful web hosting solution for your Internet sites and apps and you acquire one of the dedicated web hosting plans that we provide you with, you'll have a substantial amount of physical memory available constantly. You shall be able to check out the hardware configuration anytime from the billing Control Panel, including the amount of RAM. We test out the memory sticks extensively as well as the rest of the parts before we use them to put together any web server, so when you get one of our solutions, you shall get a high-quality hosting server that'll guarantee outstanding general performance for your sites. Even in case you don't use the entire capacity of the server for an extended stretch of time, the physical memory will still be available for your server only.
